It's impossible to say. Microsoft does not document or support directly accessing any of the objects in the Report Server database with the exception of the ExecutionLog views

I can access alot of tables like catalog,Policies,Roles,Users but table event,history,subscription  has on data in ReportServer database in SSMS

Yes, they cannot block access to people that have high enough rights on the database server. But they do not support making changes to the tables or even querying them directly. It can cause blocking and interfere with the normal operation of Report Server.

I want to see data in table  [Event] and [history] in ReportServer database  in sql server managemet studio when i do select on it dont retrive any data why althoughi can select from tables like catalog,Policies,Roles,Users

Is not recommended use these undocumented tables directly. Use API access.

But unformately, Event table is not log, these are records only for short time during PBI report refresh queuing. History table is only for history snapshots of paginated reports.
